Unusual screen protector for Minelab CTX 3030 (made of carbon)

Have you ever seen an expensive Minelab CTX 3030 after a couple of years of active hunting? Like in any other detector, the control panel and screen are the ones that become affected right after the search coil. Maybe a screen protector will help?


The screen protector consists of a transparent film and carbon cover plate for the Minelab CTX 3030 control panel. All of this is self-adhesive. According to the seller, this product provides more reliable protection for the detector than a rain cover. Plus, there are no problems with condensation inside the cover.


The screen protector is being sold on ebay.com and costs GBP 4.99. The full name of the accessory is CTX 3030 SCREEN PROTECTOR & FASCIA OVERLAY CARBON BLACK FINISH.

  • Has anyone tried this? Or know of a better screen protector?

    • I just put this on my new CTX. I like the overlay but the screen protector is junk. Would like a cover more like the equinox covers. Impossible to get on without fingerprints or dust. All in all it will work and do the job it was bought for. Protect the investment.

  • I just ordered one. I will post an update after I get it. My logic is it would work in the same manner as a phone display film.

    Im doing this, with a 5pc neoprene cover, and a arm cuff cover. Outside of the coil and the shaft lock the whole machine is covered/protected within reason.

    For the cost if this machine its pennies on the dollar to get the protection.

    Worthy investment imho.
